I would like to see a new catagory: "See recent additions in English". It would make viewing new additions much easier!

Good idea. It can be done using a custom search.

an example URL:
http://tinyurl.com/7fe866

It will display all works on Internet Archive, sorted by date of addition, newest first. It will exclude the Open Source archive (spam). And it will exclude works in French and German. You can add additional foreign language exclusions as they come up. I don't think it's possible to say "show only English" since many of the English works don't have a tag for English. But anything non-English usually has a meta tag, which can be excluded from the search.

UPDATE

well, it looks like most of the works added recently do in fact have a eng tag (see the file meta.xml under HTTP). So it's a simple matter of searching for all that have this tag will show English works only. But there is no guarantee that it will get all of them since some may not have the tag, use it at your own risk of missing some here and there.

(bookmark this URL and use it instead of the "Recent additions" link).

Many thanks for the update. Yesterday I scrolled through 140 pages of Yiddish! Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

Why exclude the open source archive. I put all of my stuff up under the creative commons license since the digital copy is an open source version of a public domain work. The open source archive is not all spam and by refining your search you can exclude most of the crap anyway.

So garthus... when you said a few weeks ago that you would try to find the old London Socialist Congress of 1896 book, were you just kidding, or are you really going to upload it?

Just want to know before I make an ILL request.

Dudeman,
I made a request already, sometimes they take 4-6 weeks. Actually I am interested in this sort of stuff but have been concentrating on digitizing whatever materials I have collected over the years since I do not have space any more. Sold the house and moved into an apartment. It would be nice to see the entire collection of those proceedings digitized.

That is kina what I have been planing on my own, building a bibliography on the Second International on worldcat

http://www.worldcat.org/profiles/dudeman5685/lists/409627

But the sticking point is, the London congress was the only one with the full proceedings published in English. The International Socialist Bureau tried to get US and British parties to translate and print the records of the later congresses, but these failed due to a lack of underwriters.

Some people just have no appreciation of History.

Dudeman,

I saw some interesting items in your biblio. Are any or all of them in the Archive, if I can get them I will have them scanned.

Minkoff was basically a reprint series based on the george Haupt bibliography, which I also used to create my own list (though I also added some things he didn't) Most of the material is in French or German, but there is some in English, Yiddish and, I suspect, Russian.

I don't know about the cp status of the Minkoff reprints.

what's a good search to use on Open Source to exclude unwanted stuff?
